Easter Programme Featured

On 21 March, we commemorated the rise of Jesus at the College Hall.  With a succession of hymns, Bible readings on the prodigal son, the lost sheep, Isaiah the prophet’s words about a redeemer from the Father, the Seven Last Sayings of Jesus, and Fr. Philip Chan’s sermon on Merciful like the Father, we recollected scenes, imagery and sayings of Jesus and about Jesus, the Lamb of God who gave up His life for us.

 

Fr. Philip took us through our deep-seated misunderstandings about why Jesus was crucified with different forms of Merciful like the Father. He explained that the Church celebrates His brutal death and glorious resurrection because it is all about us. That the Lamb of God surrendered Himself on the cruel cross but to give us the grace of a new life and fulfill the loving reconciliation with the Father despite our willful misconduct or unknowing negligence.  That through Him we have made anew and our records covered. Have we drawn this message close to us or taken it lightly?

 

 

… whereas he was being wounded for our rebellions, crushed because of our guilt; the punishment reconciling us fell on him, and we have been healed by his bruises.  We had all gone astray like sheep, each taking his own way, and Yahweh brought the acts of rebellion of all of us to bear on him.
